    I assume you already have my address. I'll see you sometime this weekend.

    :laugh:

    What is the Jewish equivalent of a tiger parent?

    Oh yeah, he'll be walking before we know it. I don't worry at all about it. Plus, I'm pretty sure he's fucking with us. He's taken to standing in one place for about 60 seconds and watching us call him and cheer for him before sloooooowly lowering himself to the floor with a look on his face that can only be described as "I'm a baby, but I know I run this house, bitches."

    I ran a tollbooth in Delaware a few months ago because I was late to a flight in Philly. Sailed thru the EZ Pass lane without an EZ Pass.

    I didn't pay the fine, because I am a rebel, because it was out of state, and because those fuckers cost me literally 2 hours in the slowdown for the toll booth because they were doing road construction... to expand the fucking toll booths... so they can continue collecting $$$ on I-95 from all the suckers who have to drive the 10 miles through Delaware to get to important places like NY. I'm expected to pay them for wasting my motherfucking time? :slayer: Furthermore, thanks to them, I was the douchebag in security begging to go to the front of the line, and then I was the fatass motherfucker sprinting through the terminal and huffing and puffing into my gate.

    Whoops, uh oh, they flagged my vehicle registration though. I thought it was going to be a massive PITA to get my plates re-upped. I was starting to worry about how long I was going to be waiting down at the MVA tomorrow while they called Delaware DOT and collected my fucking toll money and cleared the administrative flag and blah blah blah. I was getting numb just thinking about it.

    I went online to see when they open in the morning. To my everlasting surprise, Maryland MVA has come into the 21st century. You can do certain things online - including paying administrative flag fees and renewing registrations! To my further surprise, just paying the flag fee released the registration. How dumb is that? I paid the "flag fee" to the state of MD without actually paying the underlying violation in DE.

    Suck it, Delaware.

    I have valid registration.

    I agree.

    I haven't paid the I95 toll in DE during the 4 years I've been driving between DC and Philly on a ~monthly basis; there's an easy path to avoid the booth by using Elkton Rd (MD 279), Christiana Pkwy (DE 4), and College Ave (DE 896). At worst it adds 10 minutes of time to the drive; at best it actually saves time if there's a backup at the toll booths.

    ^^the dirty secret... is that as long as you don't have an EZ pass (or its hidden) you can just call them and say sorry and they'll just forget about them.

    its usually just a woman with a computer manning the security cameras.

    another dirty secret? you can just go through those tolls (as long as a cop doesn't see you) and not pay... and nothing will happen even if you don't call... its basically an honor system... I have friends that have never paid the $1.00 on the Garden State Parkway ever... they just run the unmanned booths and don't give a shit.
